: in terms of water supply, wastewater, stormwater development -- these are independent technologies. but what came first, most often, was a water supply system. the basic system is essentially the same as we used back in the 19th century. and in some cases, some of the same pipes. grusheski: philadelphia was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water
than that. technology is advanced. they're going the start as close as possible to the event, to the explosions and move out from there. so, my nat data first and then slowly but surely, they'll get through the rest of those photos and video. over time, but it will be weeks. they will have a better sense of what might be connected to other factors, like the bags that they think carried the bombs. so i think it's great, get this now, because it's difficult to be preserved. >> is this, is that an approach that has evolved over the past 12 years? is that not the way they would have approached this before 9/11? before we had this huge investment in intelligence since then? >> first, we simply didn't have access to all this video and photo technology that is ubiquitous today. there are far more video cameras, hoemts and restaurants and people are walking around with iphones. the second is a much greater ability to deal with these massive amounts of data and the technology there has improved and the u.s. government and the intelligence community has been on the forefront. >> is the
. >> sreenivasan: wow. dr. alasdiar conn, thanks so much for your time. >> thank you. >> ifill: technology changed the speed and the accuracy with which we learned of the boston attacks. but it also quickly became a platform for the nation's shock and grief. newshour political editor christina bellantoni talked with our daily download team about that. >> for that look at how technology factored into yesterday's tragedy i'm joined by lauren ashburn and howard kurtz, "newsweek's" washington bureau chief and host of cnn's "reliable sources." thanks for being here. after 9/11 we saw people physically putting up photos of their missing loved ones in lower manhattan. yesterday the internet provided a sense of comfort for some. what did we see? >> well, google person finder factored into this. we have a graph that i can show you what it looks like. there's a big button that says "i'm looking for. requests you can type in the name of somebody. or "i have information about" and you can also type in the name of someone. then you can take this tool and embed it on your own web site. so in the aftermath of di
in one hour, but i have to say, i am impressed with the progress that has been made in technology that allows us to even been 48 hours, be this close, apparently, to what we've got right now, right? >> that's right, bill. and it's not only the technology within homeland security, the fbi and atf and what they can do to dissect this explosive and what we can do with dna evidence and the crime scene, but it's also the technology with the pedestrians and the people who are running the marathon and just people who are out there, who are assisting law enforcement. it all comes together. >> in the business world, we call it crowd sourcing, actually. it's a very similar thing. thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks, bob. >> okay, michelle, bill, thank you. >> we turn now to former new york city mayor, rudy giuliani, who's back with us. he's on the phone this time. mr. mayor, welcome back. >> how are you? >> good. question we have for you, you worked in law enforcement longer than you did in the management in new york city. how does it happen that -- i mean, we had so many reports to

homegrown extremists. the problem is that that technology has really widespread. it is also been talked about by domestic extremist groups. so although it is predominantly used by al qaeda associated overseas, we really can't draw that conclusion now. >> one of the most fascinating part of the story is usually when there is a big terrorism event, a group or people come forward and claim responsibility so the fact that there's been silence on this is a little bit perplexing. give us details on why they would or wouldn't do that? >> as a general matter, when al qaeda has been associated with an attack and it's an international terrorism group, that overseas group has taken credit. we haven't seen that. and my estimation is every day that passes that we don't see a claim from overseas, it makes it more and more likely that it's a domestic group. quite often domestic groups have not taken credit for it because taking credit for it would make them a much higher profile target for the fbi to go and find them. >> i want to get to the ricin story. do you -- it is strange to you that there isn't
